All our grass-fed animals are handled with the greatest of care during the processing stage to eliminate stress to the animal at all cost. In addition, once we begin the processing of the animal it is hung in a separate cooler to regulate the temp to 38 degrees. All our cows are hung for a very specific amount of time which we consider part of the “magic.” The beef, once aged properly at 38 degrees, is now ready for processing. This is where our consumers select the cuts of meats they desire, custom-crafted to their exact specifications. All our meat is vacuum packed and ready for consumption.
In 1997 and 1998 a short segment of Gladiators was introduced to the Royal Tournament event at Earls Court after London Weekend Television won the broadcasting rights from the BBC. Duel would feature in the 1997 Royal Tournament and Pursuit featured in the 1998 Royal Tournament despite it having been axed after the 1996 series. For its Royal Tournament appearance, Pursuit saw a ten-second headstart (rather than three) for the contenders with the course being a sprint round a cone, web trap (over), low wall, web trap (under), hand ladder, high wall, sprint round a cone, spaghetti junction (used in the Eliminator in 1996) and sprint finish. The balance beam and wire bridge from the televised series course were not used. Fox, Rocket, Khan and Hunter took part in the shows despite Rocket and Khan not appearing in the 1998 series and the Gladiators (except Hunter) not having had chance to play Pursuit in the televised series.
Flamma is one of the biggest names in the history of ancient Roman gladiators. Of course, his true name wasn’t Flamma – which was his ‘battle’ name. But this skillful athlete absolutely justified his name with his track record as a fearsome gladiator. Before his career as a gladiator started, he was a Syrian soldier who got captured and thrown into a battle against a powerful adversary to meet a quick death. Ultimately, he did meet his end, but not after commanding an unparalleled domination against countless enemies in the grand arena of the Coliseum. Using a small sword and a shield, and armor on one half of his body, he terrorized his opponents for about 13 years in battles that attracted the biggest number of spectators. By the time he died at the age of 30, he had fought an astounding thirty four battles, twenty one of which he had won, nine were drawn and he had lost in only four of them. He was even awarded with the “rudis” along with his freedom on four different occasions. But each time, he declined the offer and continued to pursue his life as a warrior.
